Mothers Day Double-O-Seven/Weekend in Review

Saturday found the kids and I outside planting. Though I do not have a green thumb in the least, for whatever reason I was motivated to do somethings around the outside of our home. So to the nursery we went and bought shrubs, flowers and bushes.


Hard at work. I think they were working on the annuals in the planters in this picture.

We put two of these shrubs in. They are called Goldflame Spirea.
This is our lilac bush.

The kids were very excited to show dad our plantings!
Knocked out for the night! J's flight got in at 9:50 PM. Though I wanted to have someone come and stay with the kids, they really wanted to come and see their dad.

On Mother's Day we stopped at my parents for a bit, and they had decided to do some planting of their own while my mom was feeling up to it.

This gorgeous smile is enough of a Mother's Day gift for any mother.

The lovely treats/things the kids made for me. This stuff beats anything you can buy in the store any day. (Though I am enjoying the gift J bought me in CA.)
M's card was especially funny. She made me younger than I really am, and I like that in her mind I work around the house all the time and am good at loving people.
She made a card for me and for her mom even though her teacher would only let her make one plant. This is the first time we've ever encountered a teacher not allowing the kids to make things for both "moms", M was upset about it on Friday but it all worked out.

Doesn't his face look like he's thinking, not another picture mom?
Bedtime stories with dad are the best.

So glad to have this man home with me. I missed him even though it was only three days. The three days without him were long, tiring and a lot of work. Besides all that, he's my favorite and I like having him home.

There's nothing like planting to make your yard look ready for all the adventures summer will be bringing you and yours.

As always your post has brought a smile to my face and a real glimpse into your daily lives there!

I loved all the pictures, and especially of Dad reading to the kids who are snuggled up to him.
